Caro lina is better' than all the rest. ' We- are glad that election is over. Not that we think the country gained anything very valuable in the. new men who took office, or suffered any serious loss in the" going out of those who had been in, but we feel that now the peoplo can settle down to more: im port ant business than political squab bling. We are not indifferent to the interests jf good government nor to the viral importance of a free ballot. We sympathize with every effort of the people to procure better service in public offices, but we do not find ourselves much in sympathy with the present political methods. We cannot bid God speed to the party ship that sets sail on a sea of whiskey, whose canvas is filled with the breath of . slander and abuse, whose cargo con sists of broken premises and dead issues. Once, years and years. :ago, when we were young and tender j and green we believed in one of i great P'irtioi.

Dancey, Assistant Chemist, State Agri cultural" Department had reached here "the night previous. They came here to rest, and as .soon as breakfast was over proceeded to realize this object in vigorous fashion, by rambling all ov er the place, gather ing wild flowers, collecting mementoes and in general "taking in" Southern Pines. The Boston men were delight ed to find here Mr. Joel M. Hold en, a prominent business man of the same city, who is so charmed with the place thai he will make it his home a good portion of the year. After a day of rather active resting these gentlemen together wth Mr. A. M. Clarke, of Delta. Pa., another new resident, met in the parlor of 1 the Prospect House a nd gave expression to their opinion of Southern Pines in the following letter: ; . Southern Pines, N. C, Nov. 1st, '86. To F. W. Clark, G. P. Agt, Seaboard Air-Line Railroad Co. Dear Sir: . , ; The Undersigned, citizens of several states, now guests at Prospect Hotel, Southern Pines, desire to express our great obligations to you for the many courtesies you have extended us during the past week, and especially for your thoughtfulnjss in bringing us to this del ghtf ul resting- place. We have found Southern Pines an attractive and desirable resort tor invalids, tour- sired. It is just the place for invalids j and for all who wish a comfortable home. We find here a community of refined and educated people vho came to make a temporary stay because of the healthfulness of the place, and have received such benefits from it and have found a residence here so delightlul that they have become permanent in habitants. j We believe that when sportsmen learn of the abundance jof quail, wild turkeys, foxes and deer! they will re sort to this place in great numbers ev ery winter. ' The mildness of the climate is ex- I s emplified by the wildf and garden flowers now in bloom! Some of us have gathered to-day the following garden flowers: Agera turns, Chrysan themums, Carnations, Balsams, Ger aniums, Verbenas, Petunias, Pinks, Snap Dragons, Morning Glories, Drummond Phlox, Roses (two kinds). race, rsut it is rounded on the tunda mental error that education does not improve a man morally. Why should not the State require that sound mor ality should be taught in the public schools?. Why should not a teacher be required .to teach his pupils that it is wrong to murder, to steal, to commit adultery, to bear false witness or to violate the laws of the land? And who will undertake to say that such teach ing is not calculated to elevate and im prove any branch of the human fami ly? The education of the head is good as far as far as it goes, but the educa tion of the moral nature combined with that of the head is better. It will pay the State to secure such an ed ucation to the children. Hickory Press, ; THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION. Washington, D.

Sunday morning the party of North era 'editors' and others who had spent " -' ! . t Satuidav in viewing the beautiful itv of Charlotte arrived here. They consisted of Messrs. J. Clark Stuart "and L. Clark Hariis, of Shippensburg, Pu., 15. S. Phelps, of Pottersvillc, Nl Y and journalist!. L. A. Dodge, of 1 ' i native and northern-born citizens of this vicinity, we j are onvinced that there is no better place iSouth for the cultivation of vegetables, small fruits, grapes and peaches forj the Northern markets and, as Southern Pines is but 22 hours by rail from New York city, it has the advantage over other local- ities at greater distance. While the season here is fully as. early as that of the coast there is this additional ad vantage ac Southern Pines, that there is no danger of frost, destroving the earlier crops. j 4 ! We can conceive .of bu ons thing requisite to the rapid popularizing of Southern Pines as a health and pleas ure resort for Northern visitors, and that is that the enterprising railroad system with which you are officially connected shall so arrange its sched ule that passengers liiay reach this place in the day-time, without chang ing cars on the road. Very respectfully yours, Lewis A. Dodge, Boston. J. B. Doyle, Steubenville, O. J. M. Hold BN, Boston. ists and jdeasiye seekers, and we de sire to express our united opinions as to the present condition and future prospects of this place. We find here a rolling country, mainly covered with trees of long leaf pine. The soil is a pure sand, which insures a dry atmosphere. The water is free from all impurities and is re markably cool aud soft. The breeze sweeping across these hills is fragrant with the balsamic odor of the pine. In every direction are firm roads winding for miles through the woods that, be cause of the peculiar nature of the soil, will always be in good condition for riding or driving. prayer: A. proclamation by the President of the United States: It has lonr been the custom of the people of the United States on a day in each year especially set apart for that purpose by their chief executive, to acknow ledge the goodness and mercy of God and to invoke his continued care ami protection. In observance of such custom, I, Grover Cleveland, Presi dent of the United States, do herebv designate and set apart Thursday, the 25th day. of November, to be observed and kept as a day of thanksgiving and prayer. On that day let all of, our people forego their accustomed em ployments and assemble in their usual places of worship to give thanks to the Ruler of the universe for our continued enjoyment of the. blessings of a free government, for a renewal of business prosperitj thronghout our land, for the return which has rewarded the labor of those who till the soil and for, our progress as a people in all that makes a nation great; and while we J.
